Tela, Papel y Tijeras : A Magazine Themed Cameo Book
Recently I’ve been fascinated with cameos and I wanted to make a book incorporating my new obsession. I also like to draw hands. I translated and used the magazine title for my theme.
– 6 cardboard (I used recycled boxes)
– Ribbon scraps
– 3 mini hinges
First, I cut 6 ovals and drew hands as if they were holding the materials. Then I made the fabric roll by rolling a small piece of card stock and using a fat scrap ribbon. Another paper roll tied with gold ribbon was used on the second page. For the next page I stamped, cut and glued the scissors. Finally I stamped the words “Tela, Papel Tijeras” on a scrap of card stock, tore and distressed the edges. Then I stitched the border with red thread. I trimmed the ovals with ribbon after attaching the hinges. The front and back of this book are covered with additional ovals.
I drew the woman on the cover and tied a necklace made with wool stripping and an earring. I embellished the borders with half pearls to enhance the cameo appearance. I added gold ribbon on the cover and back.
